Kuwait is utterly committed to the protection of expatriate labour rights, particularly domestic workers, an official said on Thursday, underlining that breaching these rights is not tolerated under any circumstances.

Finance Minister and Acting State Minister for Economic Affairs Maryam Al-Aqeel expressed her sorrow over the passing of a Filipino national, employed as a domestic worker, after an alleged attack by a Kuwaiti national.

“Kuwait is a nation of institutions, where the law is applicable to all – nationals and expatriates alike,” the minister said in a statement.

The minister said she was confident that “the Kuwaiti justice system, an impartial safe haven for nationals and expatriates.”

Kuwait hosts hundreds of thousands of migrant workers as it is one of the most lucrative employment destinations due to the freedom, security and protection of rights it offers to these employees, she added.

“Incidents may occur from time to time,” she added, “but these are few in comparison to the size of the migrant labour employed in the country,” she added.

“Some might use these incidents to exacerbate the situation or attempt to drive a wedge between Kuwait and any labor-exporting nation,” she said.
